Always remember this, no matter how difficult it is to understand what is happening in the world around us, you are in the greatest danger when you lose connection to the pathway of our own soul. When you lose this true sense of self, which is grounded in the mysteries of your bloodlines, you forfeit the natural source of wisdom that gives birth to your purpose and ultimate happiness. As you learn to listen to the voice of your ancestral guardian soul, you find the inner speech that is most instructive, most compassionate and most true. You have not sent yourself into the world, after all. You were sent here to complete the errand started by your ancestors at the very dawn of time. Let us consider the continuation of the sacred text mentioned above, which teaches us this way:
One day, all kinds of people;
good people and those who do not allow good
in other people’s lives gathered together.
They then went to Òrunmìlà.
They said “Coming back and forth to earth tires us, Òrunmìlà.
Therefore, please allow us to rest in heaven.”
Òrunmìlà said “You cannot avoid going back and forth to earth
Until you bring about the Good Condition that Olódùmarè has ordained
for every human being.
After then, you may rest in heaven.”
- Holy Odu IrosunIwori
